Ion slip effect on the flow due to a rotating disk with heat transfer

  • Hazem Ali Attia


The steady hydromagnetic flow due to a rotating disk is studied with heat transfer considering the ion slip. The governing equations are solved numerically using finite differences. The results show that the inclusion of the ion slip has important effects on the velocity distribution as well as the heat transfer.
